Growing a better world together
I think it is important to work together for a better world and I use the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations as a guide.
I help entrepreneurs with issues related to innovation, digitization and sustainability. For starting entrepreneurs through various master classes and workshops. For Scale-ups through accelerator programs and various partnerships.
Furthermore, as Rabobank we organize sector-specific circo tracks in the field of stimulating the circular economy and we work together with Energieke Regio and Eneco to help entrepreneurs with the energy transition. One of the ways we do this is by making business parks more sustainable.
I help entrepreneurs and initiatives in the city to make the food chain more sustainable and shorten it. We also invest in food education programs.
Finally, I think it is important that everyone in our working area becomes financially healthier. To this end, we as Rabobank provide various workshops in the city, from bank workshops for primary school students to workshops on entrepreneurship and leadership for MBO and HBO.
We as Rabobank make all this financially possible through financing, where we also look at alternative forms and stack financing. But also through Rabo Participations, Innovation Loans and Rabo Impact Loans. We can also use the Rabobank Foundation and funds from our cooperative fund.
